April 9 – Incoming Players

April 9, 2015

Thanks to those who attended the meeting for new players last night at the Richmond School. As a follow-up, I’ve posted the background information sheet we distributed for those who weren’t able to make it to the meeting.

  • Please pass information along to other potential players – and have them be in touch with me so that they can be included in my database.
  • Registration information for Summer League teams will be posted soon.

HHS Girls Soccer Overview

Soccer 2015

April 5, 2015

Yes – it is time to start thinking about HHS Soccer for the fall of 2015 . . .

  • For those of you making summer plans; Pre-Season will start with an all-player meeting (and time trial) late afternoon on Sunday August 16. The first day of school is September 2 – so there will be plenty of Pre-Season fun this year.
  • This Wednesday (April 8 at 7:00pm; Richmond Middle School, Hanover) there will be an introductory meeting for all incoming freshmen who are thinking about playing HHS soccer in the fall of 2015. This will be an opportunity to hear about the program, talk to coaches (Varsity & Reserve coaches will be there) and ask questions of current players. We encourage all who are even thinking about playing HHS soccer to come to the meeting. Come with questions and bring your friends.
  • If you are new to this website – please check the “follow” option (either at the top or bottom of the screen dependent on your browser). Once you’re a follower, you’ll receive email notice every time new information or announcements are posted.
  • Looking forward to meeting new players on Wednesday . . . Questions? – dkennedy@dougkennedyadvisors.com

Blog Update Data

December 29, 2014

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 18,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 7 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

November 16 – Keep Playing Soccer – Futsal

November 16, 2014

Futsal is an excellent opportunity to improve your soccer skills, get in a bit of fitness and have some fun on Sunday afternoons. Without question, those who play in the off-season are those who improve in the off-season. At one quick hour – futsal is also a great opportunity for those playing other sports to get in a weekly bit of soccer.

Futsal – Sunday afternoons from 3:00 to 4:00pm in the Norwich/Marion Cross School gym (entrance it to the rear right of the school). Wear flats or other non-marking sneakers and  bring water and a grey shirt – just like real soccer. Watt Alexander runs the program – and has been officially blessed with coach’s seal of approval.

All HHS players are welcome. Be there – play futsal – have fun!

All in all, a great fall for the Varsity and as well as the Jr. Varsity and Reserve teams. The combined record for the three teams was 39-5-3.
